My partner and I stayed at Quinto Do Figo Verde in early September 2012 and it was a lovely experience. The weather and surroundings where beautiful and the farm itself was both an interesting and relaxing place to stay and I would strongly recommend a visit. Ben and Anna took care of us really well with information about the surrounding area and places to visit, and the whole concept of the farm. When it came to meal times it was excellent – breakfasts where a veritable buffet of cereals, fruits and breads, pancakes and eggs - fresh juices, teas and coffee and some of the most amazing Marmalade I’ve ever tasted; a great start to the day! The optional dinners were also fantastic and we were treated to some lovely Mexican and a fun night of making and baking pizza in the purpose build oven.
The tents themselves are lovely and clean, spacious and very comfortable – it’s a really nice set up for a getaway and a far cry from the damp and dull camping holiday’s I have been used to in the UK.
There are some lovely little towns to visit in the local area and a few great spots for a swim. Generally I would recommend bringing a car – but you are also able to borrow bikes from the site; there are some amazing views and great surroundings and it’s a really nice way to take in the scenery – but I would say that it requires an adventuring spirit to conquer some of the hilly terrain.
We stayed at Quinto Do Figo Verde for 5 days and really enjoyed ourselves – it was a great break from our normal city lives and I would heartily recommend a visit.
Thanks Ben and Anna for taking care of us so well.
